Another candidate has crossed the $100,000 threshold.

Grassroots candidate Clint Didier recently raised $22,000 in a one-night fundraiser, and former Washington State Agriculture Director Don Newhouse has raised about $150,000 so far.

Now candidate Geroge Cicotte released information Friday indicating his campaign has reported to the Federal Election Commission that they too have gained $100,000 in support.

Counting candidates who are involved in "exploratory" campaigns, or have publicly filed or declared to run, there are at least 12 people seeking to fill the 4th Congressional seat which Hastings will vacate at the end of the year with his retirement.
